Alright time for another real story that was nominated for Oscars that is now on Netflix. This one will surely be more serious than the other one though given the content. I like Thomas McCarthy's films. He did Up, The Cobbler, and Million Dollar Arm. I haven't seen any of Josh Singer's films yet though. I also really like the cast here. A newspaper suing the Catholic Church has to be a very inten... read more

Spotlight, based upon the Boston Globe’s 2002 expose on sex abuse within the Catholic Church, is a film that takes a familiar story, but pulls back the curtain to reveal the blood, sweat, and groundwork it took to uncover it all. It presents Boston not as a sprawling city, but as a small-town mindset, heavily under control of the church and prone to closing ranks to protect its own. It would sou... read more

It tells of how the Boston Globe's "Spotlight Team" reporters spent a year interviewing victims and reviewing thousands of pages of documents and discovered years of cover-ups by Church leadership. Their reporting eventually led to the resignation of Cardinal Bernard Law, who had hidden years of serial abuse by other priests, and opened the floodgates to revelations of molestation and cover-ups worldwide that still reverberate today.

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2017 (298 movies items)

"26.9. Kyllä nyt on taas akatemiaa lellitty. Tällaisen aiheen käsitteleminen elokuvassa on juuri sitä itseään. Periaatteessa ihan hyvin toteutettua reportterijännäriä, jossa etsitään pedofiilipappeja Bostonissa. En kuitenkaan voi sivuttaa juonen onttoutta ja aihetta olisi saanut käsitellä ronskimmin. Muutamat sivuhahmotkin olivat kiinnostavia, ja heistä olisi tahtonut tietää enemmän. Naurettavuutta herätti yhden toimittajan pakkomielle laittaa jääkaapin oven viesti lapsille, "

2017: The Movie List (58 movies items)

"Kuvaa erittäin hyvin tutkivan journalismin maailmaa ja käsikirjoitus on todella onnistunut. Harmi vain että Spotlight on toteutettu niin kuivasti kuin on eikä tässä ole oikeastaan yhtään kiinnostavaa hahmoa. Toisaalta ymmärrän mitä ohjaaja on hakenut tällä lähestymistavalla: katolisen kirkon pedofiliaskandaali on jotakuinkin priimatavaraa eksploitaationa ja takuuvarmasti eksploitaationa tästä olisi tullut aivan hirvittävän huono elokuva. Ehkä tämä on parempi näin ja tiukast"
